Top baby items to have for the first year

A Listmania! list by Mary Ann Rodgers "brugrad" (Los Angeles, CA United States)
 
Munchkin Portable Nightlight
1.  Munchkin Portable Nightlight by Munchkin
The list author says:
  "A must for nighttime feedings. Keeps the light low so your baby won't wake up, and helps prevent you from stubbing your toes in the dark! Plus it's rechargeable and stays on for 30 minutes before shutting off automatically."

Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Bouncer
2.  Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Bouncer by Fisher-Price
The list author says:
  "These were a necessity for twins! The vibrating chair was key for fussy times and helping them go down for naps. The interactive mobile was one of the first toys they started to play with. A lifesaver for double feedings! The chair is also removable and washable for those inevitable blow outs. Definitely a multi-use and sound investment."

Cloud B Sleep Sheep on the Go
3.  Cloud B Sleep Sheep on the Go by Cloud b
The list author says:
  "This is a great white noise maker. I also have the larger crib version but in hindsight, the portable one is all I needed. It plays four sounds and has two timer settings, plus it's small enough to fit in your diaper bag. I used it on the go and around the house. I recommend having two so you can leave one in the nursery."
$24.95   Used & New from: $19.96

Summer Infant Swaddleme Cotton Knit, Monkey
4.  Summer Infant Swaddleme Cotton Knit, Monkey by Summer Infant
The list author says:
  "These swaddle me infant wraps work so much better than traditional blankets because the velcro makes them super easy to put on and the babies can't wiggle out of them, until they get bigger and stronger. Once the babies heard that familiar velcro sound they knew it was time for bed!"
$19.99

Summer Infant Best View Handheld Color Video Monitor with 2.5" Screen
5.  Summer Infant Best View Handheld Color Video Monitor with 2.5" Screen by Summer Infant
The list author says:
  "This video monitor saved me from getting out of bed to check on the twins every 2 minutes! I bought an extra camera so I could watch each one in his own crib. It has a color monitor and pans and zooms, which I later found out not many monitors do."

Gerber Knit Burp Cloth, 3 Pack, Neutral
6.  Gerber Knit Burp Cloth, 3 Pack, Neutral by Gerber
The list author says:
  "You need these everywhere: living room, bedroom, diaper bag, car, stroller, etc... These are my favorite because they're absorbent and soft and can be folded up to be used for other things."

BABYBJORN Baby Carrier Original, Gray/White, Mesh
7.  BABYBJORN Baby Carrier Original, Gray/White, Mesh by BabyBjörn
The list author says:
  "I have the original but I would buy this one if I had to buy one again. Babies are like heaters and after 15 minutes of wearing your baby you're burning up. They can give you some freedom to do chores or errands. My babies fell asleep as soon as I started walking around with them in it. They were a lot more convenient sometimes than taking the stroller out."
$69.96   Used & New from: $60.84
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (915 customer reviews)

Boppy Pillow with Slipcover, Lots O Dots
8.  Boppy Pillow with Slipcover, Lots O Dots by Boppy
The list author says:
  "For breastfeeding I liked the My Breast Friend better but then I only nursed for 5 weeks. Boppies are good for nursing also, especially when they're really young. As baby grows they're really good for reclining and feeding, and for tummy time. Good to have in the bedroom and in the living room."

Bright Starts Baby's Play Place Mat, Blue
9.  Bright Starts Baby's Play Place Mat, Blue by Bright Starts
The list author says:
  "I have another version of this but I love this one because the mat is extra large, enough room for twins, and it has a good selection of toys that are included. Plus it has many loops where you can hang more toys."
Used & New from: $104.06

Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper, Green
10.  Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper, Green by Baby Einstein
The list author says:
  "I borrowed this one from my sister but I would have bought it myself. It has a lot of options for play and many loops for adding more toys. My boys love playing in it which gives me more time to make myself some breakfast. I see them using this for a long time."

Lamaze Play & Grow Freddie the Firefly Take Along Toy
11.  Lamaze Play & Grow Freddie the Firefly Take Along Toy by Tomy
The list author says:
  "I have several toys from Lamaze. They hold my babies' attention because of the bright colors and contrasts and sounds they make. I take one toy each whenever we go somewhere. They have a convenient hook so they can attach to the car seat or your diaper bag."
$12.72   Used & New from: $4.95

aden + anais Classic Muslin Swaddle Blanket 4 Pack, Zoo Animals (Previous Model)
12.  aden + anais Classic Muslin Swaddle Blanket 4 Pack, Zoo Animals (Previous Model) by aden + anais
The list author says:
  "I got a pack of these as a baby shower gift. They're extra large and gauzy and can be used for many occasions: draped over the car seat for shade, swaddling for sleep, on the floor for tummy time, covering up while nursing... They're light and breathable and very stylish."
$49.95
